Odd Man Out: Criterion Collection This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent DVD reviews include: Odd Man Out: Criterion Collection - this movie kicked off director Carol Reed's run of great post-war films and its indelible style, sharp vignettes, and masterful lead performance makes for an immensely rewarding film.; X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes - among the smartest and most thoughtful genre films of its era, this Blu-ray release of the Roger Corman film has a gorgeous presentation and substantial extras; and Hoop Dreams - this excellent film helped bring a newfound vitality to documentaries as it follows two young boys in Chicago as they attempt to find success in high school basketball which will hopefully find them securing a college scholarship. Other recent reviews include: Journey to the Center of the Earth (4K remastered version), Solomon and Sheba, and Batman vs. Robin.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Inside Amy Schumer: Seasons One & Two TV on DVD remains very popular with more and more favorites being released. New TV reviews include: Inside Amy Schumer: Seasons One & Two - a tremendously funny show that's loaded with big laughs and refreshingly light on potholes; Case Histories: Complete Collection - a good private eye series based on novels and characters created by Kate Atkinson, it tells the story of an ex-soldier/ex-cop turned private investigator struggling with family problems and haunted by memories of the death of a young woman; and Hill Street Blues: Season 4 - season four found the show cresting at the highest possible peak of an already large wave, and it was breathtaking to enjoy the ride.

The Friends of Eddie Coyle This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: The Friends of Eddie Coyle - Robert Mitchum is superb as an aging Boston hood who turns squealer in hopes of avoiding a prison term. Unfortunately, the ruthless web of deceit and informing in the Beantown underworld puts him at a lethal disadvantage; Hoop Dreams - Three filmmakers followed two disadvantaged Chicago neighborhood boys for five years, as they pursued their goal of becoming big-time NBA basketball players; and The Way Things Go - A pair of Swiss artists / mechanics / chemical engineers fashion an astonishingly varied and intricate Rube Goldberg machine that takes a full thirty minutes to play out. It's a seemingly endless set of mechanical cause & effect actions. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Babadook Some great discs are being released this week. Check out these new movies: The Babadook [review] - one of 2014's best horror films featuring an insidiously terrifying idea by writer / director Jennifer Kent and a spectacular lead performance in Essie Davis... it's a terrifying and unique movie; Sullivan's Travels [review] - a sharply written and executed comedy classic from writer/director Preston Sturges, the film is a heartfelt masterpiece about our ability to laugh and make others laugh; and Joe 90: The Complete Series [review] - another fun Gerry Anderson Supermarionation show, it's easy to see why '60s kids were enthralled by the slicked-up adventures of a boy spy who vanquished enemies with a host of cool props and vehicles. Other reviews of note include: Carrie / The Rage: Carrie 2 [review], Class of 1984 [review], and Tales of Terror [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Empire Records This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent DVD reviews include: Empire Records - There's nothing but good intentions coursing through this film about a cluster of eccentric, music-loving employees who bond between the walls of a record store; The Wicked Lady - a pleasant surprise, it's campy fun, boasting an excellent cast of seasoned British players with Faye Dunaway's overwrought centerpiece entertainingly villainous; and Together Brothers - a watchable slice of mid-1970s drama - it feels like a blaxploitation film on the surface but this production was definitely made with a broader audience appeal in mind. Other recent reviews include: Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, Breakin' / Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, and The Bounty.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Overnight DVD Talk reviewer Jeff Nelson traveled to Austin, Texas for South by South West 2015 last month. While he was there he saw some great films that are making the film feastival circuit. Check out these movies that all come highly recommended: The Overnight - There are an abundance of laughs to be had in writer/director Patrick Brice's newest film; Mania Days - writer/director Paul Dalio has crafted a masterful drama with an impact unlike anything else.. the best film of the SXSW 2015 Film Festival; and The Invitation - a slow-burn thriller that greatly enjoys manipulating the audience with its various twists and turns... this is atmospheric cinema that knows how to create tension. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

WKRP In Cincinnati: The Complete First Season Some great TV shows have made their way onto DVD recently including: WKRP In Cincinnati: The Complete First Season - a great opportunity to enjoy the consistently excellent start of one of TV's best-written, best-cast sitcoms... and this new Shout Factory release of WKRP's first season successfully preserves many of the great musical jokes that were lost in the previous Fox release; Greatest Heroes of the Bible: Volume One - this Schick Sunn Classic Productions from the late 70's is just what you'd expect from the company... family friendly fare on a very low budget; and Fairy Tail: Part 15 - the series remains entertaining, action-packed, and engaging throughout this entire set.
